Remove all straps and padding. Remove the shoulder plastic flaps. Cut out pleather to cover exterior shoulder pad surfaces. Glue pleather to stripped down shoulder pads (I use upholstery spray contact cement).
Mount Hinged Wooden Fan Platform on Modified Football Shoulder Pads
Once extraneous parts of the football shoulder pads have been removed and black pleather has been attached its time to start creating a shoulder mounted dance platform for our green friend.
Bolt Suspended Fans to Fan Platform
Bolt the fans to the hinged wooden platforms - 4 fans on each shoulder. The fans should have at least 1.5" clearance underneath for airflow. After bolt holes have been drilled in the platform (when we know the positions of the fans) cut out a 1" diameter hole under each fan for additional airflow.
